The Lynn and Jules Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film

Welcome to Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film 2012!

Since 1996, the Lynn and Jules Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film has supported the completion of over 80 original documentaries that explore the Jewish experience in all its complexity. The fund was created with a lead grant from Steven Spielberg’s Righteous Persons Foundation and sustained over 10 years with major support from the Charles H. Revson Foundation. The priority of the fund is to support projects that address significant subjects; offer fresh, challenging perspectives; engage diverse audiences; and expand the understanding of Jewish experiences.

In the past fifteen years, documentary films supported by the Kroll Fund have received Academy Award® and Emmy Award nominations, Golden Globe Awards, George Foster Peabody Awards, and prizes at festivals such as the Berlin International Film Festival, Silverdocs, the Sundance Film Festival, and the Tribeca Film Festival. Past grantees includeWaltz with Bashir, BudrusBlessed is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah SeneshCrime After CrimeWilliam Kunstler: Disturbing the UniverseOff and Running, and The Rape of Europa, among others.
